Film Description:
The film takes place in Egypt and is about a young boy named Hani and his experience of transferring from a wealthy private school to a run-down government school after his father’s death that brought his family into debt. The film focuses on how Hani, a Christian boy who is used to the westernized and luxurious lifestyle, copes with the new surrounding of a public school in which all students and faculty are Muslims. The film portrays the controversial and prevalent issues of religious and economic differences in Middle Eastern countries through the process of development that Hani goes through in the film in a very comical, ironically upbeat and heart-warming way.
